When buying a Matica printer through ID Supplies, customers will also receive our service guarantee, which consists of three things:

ID Supplies is headquartered in New South Wales, but we also offer service across Australia, including in Melbourne, Brisbane, Darwin, Adelaide and Perth.

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about ID card printers, as well as a closer look at the specifications of each Matica model.

Why use Matica plastic ID card printers?

Matica machines are higher quality than most other machines on the market, meaning they tend to last longer and work better. This, combined with our service guarantee for the life of the warranty, means a Matica printer will be a great investment in the long run.

As you will see further on, the Matica range is also uniquely versatile, offering customers a range of customisable options and allowing for a large amount of flexibility.


Can I save money with in-house plastic ID card printing?

Yes - if your organisation or government entity brings on a large number of new employees every year, printing IDs in-house will likely be less expensive than renting a printer every time a new batch of workers comes in.

Are plastic card printers easy to use?

In addition to coming with a comprehensive instruction manual, the Matica printers are straightforward machines with LCD displays that show easy-to-understand instructions. If in need of extra help, customers can reach out to our technical support team.

Are plastic card printers compatible with windows?

Yes - the Matica range is compatible with Windows XP, 7, 8 and 10.
